As the first street-legal low-voltage EV of the QUANT series, the QUANTiNO with nanoFlowcell® powertrain is premiering in its “near standard” configuration at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show (March 3rd -13th). Following further pre-production tests during the first half of 2016, nanoFlowcell AG is now considering a small-batch production run.
nanoFlowcell AG has announced it will be at this year’s Geneva International Motor Show presenting the development progress achieved with its QUANT range of models and their nanoFlowcell® powertrain technology. The nanoFlowcell AG exhibition stand in Hall 1 will be showcasing not just the QUANT E but also and especially the QUANT F Evolution sports model – reconfigured to near-production standard – and the newly developed city sports model QUANTiNO.
Starting its career as a mere concept vehicle in 2015, the QUANTiNO has been completely revised.
Featuring the nanoFlowcell® powertrain integral to its credentials as a low-voltage car, this model heralds the next generation of electric vehicles. Rated at just 48 volts and with an output of 80 kW / 109 HPmetric split between four electric motors, the all-wheel drive QUANTiNO represents a significant improvement on the one-fill, one-charge range achievable with electric vehicles. As in the case of the QUANT FE, production of the modular-designed QUANTiNO in a small-batch run is essentially possible, with a feasibility study due this year to provide the basis for the final decision.
The QUANT FE is a thoroughbred sports car with a coupé-ish 2+2 design, whose nanoFlowcell® powertrain aligns perfectly with its sporty DNA. The 801 kW (1090 HPmetric) in its veins accelerates this electric street racer from 0 to 100 km/h (approx. 62.5 mph) in a fleeting 2.8 seconds. What’s more, the energy needed for this kind of oomph is produced by the onboard power plant in a sustainable and toxicologically completely harmless process. The E in the name QUANT FE stands for Evolution, indicating the advanced state of development of the vehicle to near-series maturity. In particular, the interior of the QUANT FE has been completely redesigned with a keen eye on the homologation requirements.
About nanoFlowcell AG
Established towards the end of 2013, nanoFlowcell AG is an innovative research and development company headquartered in Lichtenstein. The focus of the research work performed by nanoFlowcell AG is on flow cell powertrain systems. Aside from further developing its QUANT range of vehicles, the company is also investigating possible applications of its nanoFlowcell® technology in other sectors and industries. To this end, two companies were founded in 2014, nanoProduction GmbH and nanoResearch SA, both wholly owned subsidiaries of nanoFlowcell AG.
